BATAVIA — There’s not much that the Batavia indoor track program hasn’t accomplished. But over the weekend, the Blue Devils boys’ squad placed another notch in its belt, coming away with the program’s first ever victory at the Monroe County League championship meet.

Batavia finished first, ahead of 21 other Section V programs, scoring 74 team points to help them outlast runner-up Rush Henrietta which finished with 63 team points.

For our boys to win the Monroe County championship as one of the smallest schools against some very tough competition can be considered one of the finest accomplishments for our track and field program,” added Burk. “The Monroe County league has so many gifted athletes and to earn this championship is very impressive.”

The meet came down to the very end and was decided in the final three events, with the Blue Devils’ 4×100 meter relay team consisting of Fabian Vazquez, Aidan Anderson, Parris Price and Cole Graziplene earning the victory that helped Batavia take home the team win. The winning relay team finished with a first place time of 1:35.61, tying a school record.

Batavia’s Austyn Fernandez won the MCL title in the shot put with a toss of 43-08 and finished fourth in the weight throw.

Jesse Reinhart placed second in the high jump with a leap of 06-00, while Vazquez was runner-up in the 55 meter hurdles with a time of :08.19. Vazquez also placed fourth in the long jump (19-10), while Carter Havens finished third in the triple jump (39-11), Ifran Armstrong placed fifth in the 55 meter Hurdles (:08.82), Luke Geiger finished second in the weight throw (51-02), and Dan Saeva finished sixth in the Shot Put (39-02).

The 4×800 meter relay team consisting of Cody Harloff, Noah Pickard, Dom Grillo, and Nate Canale placed second (8:44.39), while the 4×400 meter relay team placed fourth (3:42.99), consisting of Donovan Solis, Carter Havens, Ifran Armstrong and Cole Grazioplen.

“To have all three of our boys’ relays finish in the top four is a clear testament to the balance and depth of our program this season,” said Batavia head coach Nick Burk.

The Batavia girls’ team also fared well over the weekend, led by Gavin Konieczny’s fifth-place finish in the pole vault (08-06). Emma Radka finished in fifth place in the shot put (28-10), and the 4×800 meter relay team consisting of Campbell Riley, Makayla Andalora, Jadyn Boyce and Izzy Scott finished in fourth place (10:50.96).

The Blue Devils have two more prep meets before sectionals.

Both the boys and girls have continued to improve this season and the team is embracing the opportunities to maintain and build upon the reputation and traditions of Batavia Track and Field,” concluded Burk.
